Charlie Harrison was one of the standout riders of 2019. He stood on the podium at the first and last round of the season but unfortunately suffered a wrist injury that required surgery mid-season. We sat down to chat about his career so far, all the way from his early moto days to that amazing 3rd place in Snowshoe. We cover teammates, the importance of surrounding yourself with good people, faith, early nights, and more. So hit play and listen to this chat with Charlie Harrison.
